Emotional wellbeing is a term that has been used increasingly in recent decades. The implications of decreased emotional wellbeing are related to mental health concerns such as stress and anxiety. These in turn can contribute to physical ill health such as digestive disorders, sleep disturbances, and general lack of energy.
The profile of a person prone to emotional distress is usually someone with low self-esteem, pessimistic, very self-critical. In other words, people who need to constantly assert themselves through their behavior. They also tend to be afraid, overly worried about the future, and focused on the past.
On the positive side, enhanced emotional wellbeing contributes to upward spirals in increasing coping ability, self esteem, productivity, and even longevity.
Thoughts determine our feelings, and thoughts are nothing more than firings of neurons. Those feelings that our thoughts generate make our body release extremely addicting substances like adrenaline and cortisol.
